Nearly 370,000 Visitors.

Last Update: May 28, 2017

I'm unsure what made me want to dig into my site's analytics tonight, but as I was looking at some numbers, I noticed that my site has had nearly 370,000 visitors thus far:

To me, this is amazing!

The site is about 1 year and 4 mos. old. I did use a different domain for several months before transferring to a new domain (which has the stats above). The site was previously getting anywhere between 50-200 visitors per day.

Also, I do not pay for ads. You can see the amount of organic visits below.

The fact that I was able to attract so many people to a single website, in what feels like a short time, is what amazes me the most.

I am coming up on 2 years here at Wealthy Affiliate as a member. Prior to joining I knew ZILCH about online business, never heard of affiliate marketing, and I had no background in marketing or business in general.

I say this all the time to stress that if I can figure it out, I know you can and will too.

Things to keep in mind.

  • More visitors does not always equal more money

    - Of course you will need visitors/customers to see your business. But floods of traffic doesn't necessarily translate to floods of money. It's important to understand your audience, to speak their language, and to provide them with helpful advice, info, products and services.
  • "If you build it, they will come".

    - While 300,000 visits is 'child's play' to some, 300 visits would mean the world to others right now. You may have noticed that having a website, doesn't mean people will automatically be able to find it.

    If you are struggling with gaining traffic to your website, my advice is to ensure that you are doing proper keyword research (as per the training) prior to creating content, and to keep creating content. This method works and is free.
  • I remember the days (not too long ago) of having 0 visitors, then 5-10, then 50-100, and so on. Stick with it. You will have your breakthrough moment.

Thanks to the training here at WA, I can proudly call myself an online business owner. This was all confusing to me at first and I still have lots to learn but overall I am happy with my progress here.

Just wanted to share and give you all a quick update. I'll see you around the community!

Very nice result.
Would it be interesting to know the conversion rate out of such hundreds of thousands of visitors?
Does it work well? Also, where the most visitors are coming from and to what pages of your site? What was the profile of your visitors?
Thanks in advance!
Best regards!

Hey Igor, as I share above most visitors came by way of Organic searches (Google, Bing, etc.).

These other stats are ones that I look into here and there but nothing I care to share here.

Does it work well? There's always room for improvement in terms of conversions, funnels, etc.

Have a nice day. Thanks.

When you talk about proper keyword research as per training, Does this relate to keyword phrases that have 50+ searches monthly and a QSR at -50 or even less.

This is what I'm doing and just waiting for traffic to find me
Reply
JasonHeard Premium
Yes, precisely.

How is your on-page SEO? Are you going to Google to type in the actual keyword to seek out competition during the research stage?

I find plenty of good keywords but sometimes realize how difficult it will be to actually rank for by doing this.
Reply
DavePage Premium
i think my on-page SEO is ok.
I haven't checked my keywords with Google until you mentioned it.
I've just checked it now for another post I'm working on at there's several Ads at the top and an authority site underneath.
My QSR for this was single digit which is why I targeted it.
Am I going in the right direction so far?
Reply
JasonHeard Premium
We have no control over the ads unless you plan on taking that direction yourself, but I would pay attention to the sites on the first page.
Reply
DavePage Premium
No I don't, I merely made the observation. I'm only interested in competition sites and your advice has given me insight, thank you.

So are you trying to improve your conversion or increase brand awareness? What is your goal now that you have that many?
Reply
JasonHeard Premium
Hey Stephen,

I am working on all of the above and to double traffic on a daily basis.

To improve conversions, I have been looking more and more into copywriting. Brand awareness started the day I created the site :)
Reply
StephenO12 Premium
Are you capturing their emails? That would make for an excellent list to build from and sale over and over again?
Reply
JasonHeard Premium
Yes, there's a list.
Reply
StephenO12 Premium
Which email marketing are you using? Do you have a sale funnel? If not, I can give you the one I use.
Reply
JasonHeard Premium
I'm using Aweber.

Whoever joins the list get my insights and steps on how they can begin building an online business using the tools here. It goes hand in hand with the early lessons here at WA.
